“The term “blue economy” refers to the sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, and increased jobs while preserving the health of ocean ecosystems. Bermuda’s Blue Economy Strategy aims to facilitate sustainable fisheries, expand sustainable marine tourism, accelerate the clean energy transition, and increase blue investment and blue technologies on the island.

“The Bermuda Health Council aims to attract entrepreneurs with solutions to non-communicable chronic diseases, chronic mental health conditions, and Bermuda’s aging population.
